Folks got an early Independence Day treat Monday night at the Orleans 4th of July Fireworks show.  The amazing display lit up the clear sky over Rock Harbor.  And that's just the beginning. With the 4th on Wednesday, the celebration continues through Independence Day with more fireworks, parades and other great fun.
